-The Salomon X Raise GTX hiking shoes are modern-style athletic footwear. It boasts of a Gore-Tex waterproof membrane that protects the feet from rain and water, a stitch-free upper construction for durability, and a grippy outsole that works well on wet, dry, smooth or rough surfaces.

-It also has a protective mudguard made of leather, a toe cap, and an Ortholite footbed for added cushioning and support.

This low-cut hiker from Salomon offers a generous fit, comfort, and cushiness with its maxi-foam collar and tongue. The stitch-free upper gives a smooth, sock-like feel, and the Quicklace system made of sturdy laces facilitates one-pull tightening. There are also pull loops at the back of the collar for easy wearing or taking the shoes off.

Like other Salomon shoes, the X Raise GTX also features the Contragrip MD. It's a durable rubber outsole that boasts of the right mix of density, compound, and geometry. This propriety rubber outsole is designed for dry and wet surfaces, including soft soil, mud, asphalt, rock, and more.

For the midsole, this shoe uses an EVA foam which is known for its lightness, high bounce rate, and shock-absorbing qualities. Since it's made of low-density foam, EVA also makes a cushiony platform for the foot. For added comfort and cushioning, this hiker comes with an Ortholite footbed - a high-quality footbed that is contoured to the foot and is made of breathable material.

The Salomon X Raise men and women's shoes have welded uppers for a smooth, glove-like, fit. Tight mesh fabric is used for this shoe to prevent debris from getting trapped between the foot and the footbed. Inside is a Gore-Tex waterproof membrane that offers superior protection against rain or water. 

This shoe also features a gusseted tongue which means that the tongue is connected to the upper on both sides, keeping it centered and preventing debris from entering. Furthermore, it has a leather toe cap that protects against sharp hazards and accidental impact, and a mudguard that protects the lateral and medial sides of the foot. Completing the upper is a minimalistic yet durable lacing system that lets the wearer adjust the fit with just one pull.

-The Salomon X Raise also has a non-GTX version.
